“The Outer Space Treaty of 1967 created an obligation under international law to avoid the harmful contamination of outer space, the moon and other celestial bodies…”

Meanwhile, Elon Musk: “oi, I’ve got an idea, why don’t I launch my fucking car into space for shits, giggles, and PR?”

Everyone: “ooh, he’s so smart, he will save us all”

@aral ah, so I wasn't the only one who thought this was an asshole move

@aral Not everyone... But sadly it seems like a lot of the covering of what he did was, "man he's so smart." Which really sucks because I think he's a fucking idiot. He *may* be intelligent, but I'm not sure about that. He's good at convincing people that his harmful ideas are somehow at worst, "poorly conceived" rather than actually harmful.
